Straily's next start could get pushed to Monday against the Cubs, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

After going eight innings in Tuesday's start, the Reds seem to be leaning toward giving him an extra day of rest and moving from Sunday to Monday. Keyvius Sampson appears to be the favorite to start Sunday against the Pirates.

Straily (12-8) threw eight brilliant innings Tuesday, allowing just two runs on three hits and a walk, striking out eight and earning the win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The eight innings were a career-high for Straily, who's only blemishes were a pair of solo home runs by Keon Broxton and Jonathan Villar. The long ball has been an issue for Straily this season. Although he's limited opponents to a .219 batting average against, he's allowed 27 home runs. His ERA is 3.80 and his WHIP is 1.18. He'll look to continue his success against the Pirates on Sunday.

Straily (11-8) pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six Pirates in Thursday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

After a run of six straight victories, Straily has now dropped two of his last three starts. Furthermore, Straily pitched at least six innings in 19 of his first 24 starts this season, but has failed to get through the sixth frame in any of his most recent three outings. Despite stumbling a bit towards the finish line, the 6-foot-2 righty has enjoyed a career year in which he's set personal records for games played, innings pitched, strikeouts and wins. Straily also trying to hold on to a 3.88 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, both of which would also be career-best marks.

Straily (11-7) managed to secure the win against the Cardinals on Saturday despite issuing seven walks. He also surrendered an earned run on three hits over 5.2 innings while recording five strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

He managed to work magic despite not being able to find the strike zone on anything remotely resembling a consistent basis, giving up only a first-inning solo shot to Jedd Gyorko. The 27-year-old's performance was encouraging in the sense that it was a significant improvement over the seven earned runs, including four homers, that he'd yielded to the Angels in his last start. Straily's control issues were a marked departure from his recent performances, as he'd given up only four walks over the 32 innings encompassing his prior six starts. Straily will try to rediscover the strike zone when he takes on the Pirates next Friday.

Straily (10-7) was rocked for seven runs on eight hits over just 2.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Angels. He walked one and struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The culprit behind Straily's struggles was the long ball, as he gave up four homers in this shortened outing. All the momentum he had built up with nine quality starts in his previous 10 appearnaces has dissipated with this disaster. Things won't get any easier when the right-hander takes on a dangerous Cardinals offense in his next start Sunday.

Straily (10-6) pitched six scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out five in Tuesday's win against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Straily continued his fantastic string of pitching performances with yet another quality start Tuesday, his ninth in his last 10 outings. The righty hasn't allowed more than three runs in a game since June while pushing his ERA down to 3.57, its lowest mark in more than two months. In Straily's last seven starts, he's 6-0 with a 2.30 ERA and 40 K's over 43 innings. He'll look to keep rolling when he toes the rubber Monday versus the Angels for his next start.

Straily (9-6) hurled six innings of two-run ball, allowing six hits and no walks while punching out seven against the Marlins on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Straily's victory makes it three wins a row and nine for the season. Aside from a forgettable June (6.43 ERA), the 27-year-old has been fantastic on a horrendous team. A large part of his success is thanks to a .243 BABIP allowed -- fifth-lowest among qualified starters.

Straily (8-6) was tagged for 10 hits but allowed just two runs, struck out six and walked none over 5.1 innings in a victory over the Brewers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander came into Saturday's contest ranked in the top 10 in the league in batting average against, so allowing 10 hits was uncharacteristically high. He worked around it, though, by not allowing any walks and striking out six. Straily dropped to 11th in opponent's batting average, but Saturday was the sixth straight start where he pitched at least 5.1 innings and allowed fewer than three runs. He has a 3.75 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 111 strikeouts in 139.1 innings.

Straily (7-6) allowed two runs on three hits over six innings Sunday while striking out four in a 7-3 win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Two of the three hits he gave up left the yard, but Straily was able to minimize the damage from the homers. The right-hander has now delivered seven straight quality starts for a Reds rotation in desperate need of some consistency, lowering his ERA on the season to 3.76 in the process. He'll try to make it eight straight when he takes the mound Saturday in Milwaukee.
